We had a wonderful holiday at estate Pignataro. The trullo offers everything you need for relaxing, cooking and enjoying the good life! Paolo and Angela are genuine, friendly and helpful and make sure that you feel at home in their Trullo. The garden and swimmingpool are fantastic and Locorotondo offers plenty shops, restaurants and bars. Definitely a great place to spend a holiday!

A lovely place.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely peaceful trulllo. Simple and comfortable accomodation with a large garden (with fruit trees and a swimming pool). Nice family who were extremely kind and helpful. Good base to explore the area - we had a really good week. (suggestion - the kitchen needed a few more bowls and sharp knives).

A beautiful place, charming and optimal location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful environment, the region is fantastic.

The trullo on top of that is really picturesque, cool in the hot days of summer, and lovely, practical kitchen.

The swimming pool is also very pleasant, with a view on the countryside.

Not very far from the sea, but you do need a car to go the most pleasant beaches (around Ostuni, north of Brindisi, and Polignano a Mare)

Angela and Paolo were very helpful in their indications, very friendly. Although we arrived late in the evening they waited for us and took us to the house, took us around the property and offered some advice on what to do and what to see.

We definitely recommend this accomodation.

vakantieverblijf in een trullo

  • 4 of 5

Op het kleine 'landgoed' van de familie Renzoni hebben we 10 heerlijke dagen doorgebracht. De voorzieningen in ons trulli-appartement waren origineel, eenvoudig maar goed verzorgd. Het tweepersoonsbed sliep goed en in onze trullo bleef het behaaglijk koel. In de grote tuin met veel zon en schaduw van bomen en struiken en met veel bloeiende planten, hebben we vele uren ontspannen gezeten en gelegen. Aan het eind van de tuin ligt het kleine zwembad met mooi uitzicht op het lage dal. Het water is zo vroeg in het seizoen nog wat fris, maar eenmaal door hebben we er fijn onze baantjes gezwommen. De douche bij het zwembad geeft aangenaam warm water. Het is er landelijk en stil, naast en achter het landgoed liggen op enige afstand woningen van de buren. Het enige wat je hoort, zijn de vogels en bij tijd en wijle het hondengeblaf in de verte, want iedereen heeft hier wel een (waak)hond.

Locorotondo ligt op ca. 3 kilometer afstand en is een van de vele leuke witte stadjes in deze streek met een doolhof aan straatjes, trappetjes en onderdoorgangen. Over de in het algemeen rustige wegen is alles goed bereikbaar met de auto en veel van deze stadjes zijn in korte tijd te bereiken. Er zijn niet zoveel restaurants en meestal is het pas tegen negen uur 's avonds drukker en daarmee ook gezelliger.

Paolo en Angela Renzoni wonen zelf in Bari en kwamen met enige regelmaat langs. Het zijn vriendelijke, dienstvaardige en belangstellende mensen met een goed gevoel voor privacy. We konden elkaar in het Engels prima begrijpen. Telefonisch waren ze goed bereikbaar en als er iets mankeerde, werd direct actie genomen. Al met al een fijne vakantie, we willen zo wel terug.

From the Owner

Estate 'Pignataro' was the house of family Renzoni while Paolo's father was teacher of chemistry and agronomy in Locorotondo. The family lived there 13 years. In 18th century estate 'Pignataro' was the official residence of Castaldo who was in charge by the owner of taking care of the goods of his entire Pignataro district. He was also in charge of collecting tax as well as taking care of the justice administration.

Trullo del Castaldo is situated at 2 Km from the old city of Locorotondo, from the top of a hill dominating the “Itria valley”, with its “cummerese”, and its narrow streets paved with antic stones. Not to miss its many antic churches; its most delightful cycling along the country paths of Locorotondo.

At 6 km from Martina Franca, the so called: “Baroque pearl” where every July, an Opera Festival is performed, called “Festival della valle d’Itria”.

At 8 km away you can visit the centre of Alberobello, famous in the world as “ Capital city of the trulli”. Not far from Cisternino, and the white city situated on a hill named: Ostuni. For whom loves the sea at only 15 km there are the lovely beaches of Torre Canne and Monopoli with their crystal waters, not far away from the famous caves of Castellana Grotte. For the enjoyment of adults and children, at only 10 km in the Fasano area, there is the Zoo safari, the largerst in Europe.

The Puglia region

Crystal blue sea, green countryside, castles, cathedrals, watchtowers that dot the southern coast, noble palaces, historic quarters, smallest towns, museums, and picture galleries. In Puglia you can experience a multitude of emotions. Land of faith and age-old traditions, you can find the feasts of patron saints, local festivals, and suggestive historical re-enactments, artistic creations, natural landscape,safeguarded in many protected areas. Puglia is land of trulli, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, aggregated in Alberobello or distributed throughout the countryside of the Valle d’Itria. But Pulia, is a land of flavors and fragrances, with bread, fruits, wine and oil coming from magnificent, centuries-old Apulian olive trees, just steps from the sea.

The Locorotondo area

White Locorotondo is the most beautiful balcony in Murgia dei Trulli. From its belvedere, you can admire territory that at times seems emotional: a mosaic made of small vineyards surrounded by stoned walls, scrubs of Mediterranean forests and silver olive tree gardens that surround the old manor farms, thousands of trullo houses spread in the villages. The small old centre of Locorotondo is closed into its circular perfection of stones and mortars, once upon a time marked by walls. Characteristic peaky roofs made of grey stoned “chiancarelle”, called cummerse, exalt the facades, that inside represent the typical environment of star vaults.
